Blue Institutions on the top 100 THE World University Rankings 2020

At Explorance, we are in the business of partnership. We take a collaborative approach when working with higher education institutions who are leveraging the Blue suite of products to manage their feedback processes. So, when we see a few familiar names on the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020, we can’t help but celebrate their success.
